The Fundamentals of Technology classes studied about flight and the four forces acting on an airplane: lift, thrust, gravity, and drag. The students learned a great deal in the unit. After going over the worksheet, the students designed an airplane within parameters and cut it out on the laser. Once cut out they assembled the parts, installed a motor and experimented flying it around a pole. Some of the students had some trouble getting them to fly, but with a few adjustments most planes flew. Mr. George Hager volunteered his time in the two classes assisting the students with Mr. Richardson in getting the students planes assembled. Mr. Hager drew up the initial plan for the plane and assembled a model for the students to follow. The students had a good time and learned a great deal. From left to right in the top photo are: Joe Schumacher, James Hager, Kristin Hill, Eli Rad, Jeremy Ross, Kyle Holthaus, Derek Schaeffer, and Amber Frei. Not pictured are Amber Holthaus, Dustin Schaeffer, Chris Schmidt, Jake Seubert, and Branden Waller.
